Williams to Host Special Concert

On Thursday, July 31, 2014 the Citizens for a Better Williams will host a special Concert in the Park honoring SSG. Alex Jauregui and His Family.

A Williams native, Army SSG Alex Jauregui lost both legs, his hearing, and suffered extensive injuries to his right hand and forearm when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) in Sangsar, Afghanistan on April 8, 2012. Jauregui spent months in the hospital and rehab; learning not only how to walk, but to run on his prosthetic legs. Jauregui has the most incredible outlook on life and is an inspiration for us all.

Due to Jauregui’s injuries, his home was no longer adaptable; thus forcing Jauregui, his wife, and three children to find a new home. With the help of Homes for our Troops (HFOT), a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is strongly committed to building specially adapted homes for the over 1700 Service Members nationwide who have returned home with life-altering injuries post 9/11. HFOT assist Veterans like Jauregui and their families by raising money, and providing building materials and professional labor to coordinate the construction of a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently; and mortgage-free.

The Citizens for a Better Williams and the citizens of Colusa County, have taken the opportunity to help Jauregui by hosting this very special fundraising event to benefit Homes for our Troops, for the Jauregui Home.
At Venice Park, starting at 6:00 p.m., the Road Crew band will begin performing, as a wide section of local vendors serve up delicious food and drinks. All proceeds will benefit Homes for our Troops for the SSG. Alex Jauregui Home.
